PRAYER FOR DRY WEATHER IN HARVEST




Lord of the earth, and seas, and skies,
Thou sovereign source of all supplies;
Now thy preparing hand employ,
Our hearts to fill with food and joy.


Let not deserved wrath destroy
Our high-raised hopes of harvest-joy;
Thy care o'er every crop extend,
And all our fruits of earth defend.


May ripening suns, and fertile dews,
Their genial influence diffuse,
And each kind element combine,
Our hearts to cheer with corn and wine.


Lord of the harvest, thee we own:
Pour an abundant blessing down;
Say, as in ancient days, I'll give
More than your garners can receive.


Ye sons of need, with fervour pray,
To see a blest, in-gathering day ;
Then shall our joy-inspiring lays,
Shout, harvest home, in songs of praise.


And while we plead for earthly bread,
That every creature may be fed,
O let eternal thanks be giv'n
For Christ, th' immortal bread of heav'n.
